bgen-reader 1.0.0

Bgen file format reader

A BGEN file format reader.

BGEN is a file format for storing large genetic datasets. It supports both unphased genotypes and phased haplotype data with variable ploidy and number of alleles. It was designed to provides a compact data representation without sacrificing variant access performance.

This Python package is a wrapper around the bgen library, a low-memory footprint reader that efficiently reads BGEN files. It fully supports all the BGEN format specifications: 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3; as well as their optional compressed formats.

Install

The recommended way of installing it is via conda

conda install -c conda-forge bgen-reader

An alternative way would be via pip

pip install bgen-reader

In this case, you need to make sure you have both Zstandard and bgen libraries properly installed.

Usage

It is as simple as

# example.py file
from bgen_reader import read_bgen

bgen = read_bgen("example.bgen", verbose=False)

print(bgen['variants'].head())
print(bgen['samples'].head())
print(len(bgen['genotype']))
print(bgen['genotype'][0].compute())

The output should something similar to

chrom       id  nalleles   pos    rsid
0    01  SNPID_2         2  2000  RSID_2
1    01  SNPID_3         2  3000  RSID_3
2    01  SNPID_4         2  4000  RSID_4
3    01  SNPID_5         2  5000  RSID_5
4    01  SNPID_6         2  6000  RSID_6
         id
0  sample_001
1  sample_002
2  sample_003
3  sample_004
4  sample_005
